My little hedgie seems to be having issues with is teeth. I was just wondering if anyone else had ever had these issues/know what it could be. I already have a vet appt for Thursday but am very anxious. Jeppy's teeth on on side along the bottom are all blackish/green looking. Obviously infected or something. Also, if you look at him from below, his lower lip looks like it is being pulled down/in funny. That being said, he is eating and wheeling like normal and is showing no signs of discomfort. I am so concerned though. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance!!

Poor baby. Definitely keep the vet appointment. It sounds like a bad infection to me. He'll likely need some antibiotics and possibly surgery on his lower jaw, depending on how bad it is. I'm glad he's still eating though.

Let us know what the vet thinks! Fingers crossed he just needs antibiotics!
